Crawl Space Encapsulation
Encapsulation is the only foolproof way of fixing most of your crawlspace issues.
This process basically transforms your crawlspace into an insulated, dry insulated.
The following are some of the steps that are involved with a proper crawlspace encapsulation:
ELIMINATE THE WATER WITH CRAWLSPACE ENCAPSULATION.
And then keep it out permanently! Before you make any major changes to your home, first you need to get rid of any standing water and deal with any drainage problems. SmartSump is our sump pump for crawlspace drainage.
REMEDIATE THE CRAWL SPACE MOLD.
Removing old from the floor joists and cleaning any air ducts that may have mold on them is a good first step to take. Otherwise, you might seal mold up inside of your crawlspace.
INSTALL A CRAWLSPACE VAPOR BARRIER.
Your best option is using our 20 mils vapor barrier and installing it over the crawlspace support piers, walls, and floors. It is then sealed on the edges in order to prevent humidity from being able to creep up over the side.
SEAL UP THE CRAWLSPACE VENTS.
You need to make it as if they were never there to begin with. That way, humid air will not be able to easily circulate.
INSULATE THE CRAWLSPACE WALLS.
That is an effective way to regulate fluctuations in temperature inside the crawlspace and to save on your energy bills.
SEAL UP ALL CRAWLSPACE FLOOR PENETRATIONS.
Find all of the places where the pipes, wires, and ductwork penetrate the floor.
DEHUMIDIFY THE CRAWLSPACE MECHANICALLY.
How can your crawlspace be kept dry after you do all of this work? We recommend a dehumidifier where it will be nearly impossible for any mold to grow there. What is the result? No musty, smelly air. The indoor air quality is greatly improved. Fewer problems with allergies. The HVAC is more efficient. Energy bills are lower. Not as many gigantic cockroaches.
